3. ### Why are you blind to beauty?

From my experience, most people are completely and utterly blind to beauty. I do not mean the beauty in meaning (I'm talking to you, Feelers), or the beauty in a perfect mathematical theorem (I'm talking to you, Thinkers). I do not mean the beauty in subjective experiences like joy, happiness...
4. ### Daenerys Targaryen, Why Fire and Blood?

Danny decides to burn Kings Landing to the ground. It’s irritating and wholly unsatisfying, but not because it doesn't make any sense at all. It is unsatisfying because it doesn't show us anything we do not already know. The joy of good TV like Game of Thrones is not that it is unpredictable...

Ok some of you may know I'm going through a bit of depression. But no matter! I hatched an idea that might create a few opportunities. Lets write a story. All of us INTPs and who ever else is around. Lets make a collection of short stories and see if we can make a bit of money out of it?

10. ### Animated sound absorption.

I was wandering if anyone was familiar with research on sound camouflage where sound absorption coefficients differ across the surface of a material. In particular, a non static, animated, sound absorption differential.. The idea is to mimic the eco of sound through a forest; but in a small...
11. ### Category Theory or Model Theory

Us INTP's are perfectionists of thought. We are constantly in pursuit of "better" strategies; finding ways to make "thinking and learning" faster and more efficient. One way we achieve this is through the creation of very abstract mental categories. My question is: will learning either of...
12. ### Octave, Matlab or c++

Should I use Octave, Matlab or a good numerical linear algebra library in c++ to run my machine learning algorithms? Does anyone have any experience with implementing learning algorithms?

Last night I had a few drinks and went into town. The whole night I was feeling really happy; and for no obvious reason. I woke up this morning and I'm still feeling happy? Could it be the alcohol? Has anyone else had this experience? Please share.

Does anyone know how to engage the INTP Fe function? I have tried engaging this function, but every time I do, I find myself collecting and analysing social information. What exactly does it mean to engage your Fe?
19. ### New to forum: Abstract Reasoning

Hi everyone, I am new to this forum. I am currently studying mathematics. I want to know if I am wasting my time. I am attempting to discover a general set of abstractions that can be combined together to generate a larger set of abstractions. The idea is that these abstractions can be used to...
